Thereís definitely an East-West split in Edinburgh when it comes to bottle shops. Over East thereís Cornelius, at Haymarket Appellation Wines. Run by the extremely enthusiastic Ashton, Appellation stocks maybe 100 beers Ė a good range of Scottish, American craft beer, and German labels. Gets the occasional rarer item in but due to space constraints the range doesnít very as much as Cornelius maybe. But the tastings held there and the helpful advice put it over the edge (plus itís closer to my flat). A bottle shop that stocks every beer by Fyne Ales and Highland canít be doing much wrong. Great range of wines too, if thatís your thing. Can be a little pricey though - but you certainly get what you pay for.

A small shop near Haymarket in Edinburgh. Owner Ash is always up for a discussion of beers and gives good recommendations, especially on Scottish Beer. Very nice selection of Scottish Craft Beer and a good deal from around the world, especially the US. Less fun when Ash is not there. Has a good selection of Wines as well. Does tastings several times a month with visiting experts. Prices are in the high end, but that comes with the wide selection.

Always like going in when itís quiet - Sunday afternoons are good - as Ash is always prepared to have a chat.

Of the three off licenses in Edinburgh (Appellation, Cornelius, Great Grogg), Appellation has a selection, both amount of craft beer and size of selection, that is either the best or close to it. Additionally, the shop has fortnightly beer tastings, offering customers the ability to taste new beers that have come in as well as introducing craft beer to newcomers. One may find that selection does not rotate quickly but there are perhaps 130 different beers to choose from in the shop.

2014-07-09. Nice little shop with a good selection of Scottish beers and some imports. Picked up a few BrewDog beers and some other Scottish stuff. Cashier was friendly and recommended a few other local shops to potentially find beers we were looking for. I had heard of the places from Ratebeer she was suggesting which implies that she knows what she is talking about.) The store was a touch warm (I was sweating but had also just walked a fair ways to get there) so my preference would be bottles from the fridge. They had a good number of the older vintages of BrewDog AB beers but the prices were high enough that I opted to skip them without being able to check Ratebeer ratings first (my 3G access failed me in a time of need!). In fairness those are tough to find, as were some of the other pricier items. Other prices seemed more reasonable. Pretty good shop, but North American visitors may wish to lower their expectations if they are only visiting once as like any shop, inventory will vary depending on the day you go.

Decent bottle shop in Edinburgh, great owner, very helpful and friendly, little pricier than some, but well located for train station (haymarket) and usually a few new ones for me

Small shop in the west end of Edinburgh that has an extensive selection of beers from Scotland and Belgium plus a few varieties from elsewhere. This was my first visit to the shop and I was impressed with the selection and the friendliness of the staff.

Wine shop located near Haymarket with a decent beer selection. Fairly comprehensive Scottish selection and some American stuff, but really nothing that I couldnít find elsewhere. The guy working there was however rather helpful and friendly. A decent stop if in the area, but I was bit underwhelmed given some of the other glowing reviews!
